Why does sex drive and orgasm function decrease? 

There are many stressors in life that contribute to a low sex drive and a lower orgasmic effect. Declining hormones, relationship issues, and other life problems can take a toll on your sexual health. 

Older women will experience a decrease in sex drive and general vaginal function. Mental and physical illnesses such as depression, endometriosis, fibroids, and thyroid disorders, can impact your sex drive. Your ability to orgasm or experience an intense orgasm can fluctuate.

Sexual dysfunction in women

Women who experience sexual dysfunction may be suffering from the following: 

Female sexual arousal disorder

Women who suffer with this disorder have a desire for sex but have difficulty finding pleasure in sex. 

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder 

Also referred to as a low desire to have sex, this isn’t technically a disorder unless it disrupts a woman’s daily life, but around 10% of women suffer with this problem. 

Female orgasmic disorder

This disorder is less common. Around 5% of women can be aroused, but find it challenging to orgasm. It can become frustrating and prevent a woman from wanting to have sex in general. 


In this case, women suffers physical pain during sex. It may occur during the act itself or after intercourse (sore vaginal area). Around 10-20% of women deal with this issue. 

The 411 on the O-Shot®

The benefits of the O-Shot
